Re-designed and upgraded, the new Okuma C3-40X Casting Rods were designed for the anglers out there who spend every weekend fishing tournaments and every minute they can out on the water. Ultra sensitive and lightweight thanks to their advanced 40-ton carbon high-modulus blanks, they have the power to turn the heads of big bass and their feather-like feel allows you to fish for hours with very little arm and wrist fatigue. PacBay Minima reel seats also put you in direct contact with the rod blank, which combined with the absence of a foregrip and advance CarbonCone grips greatly increases sensitivity transfer and reduces weight. Additionally, ALPS low-profile guides with titanium frames and super hard zirconium inserts offer braid-ready performance, and each rod includes Fuji’s new EZ moveable hook keeper, which can be placed anywhere on the rod. Ounce-for-ounce, the Okuma C3-40X Casting Rods are the perfect high-end tournament fishing rods - especially for the price.

Comments: started out with the EVx's and liked the touch. I broke a few and they have always replaced them with no questions asked. I bought one C3's and fished it. I immediately bought 5 more. It is a stronger lighter rod. The 7'3 is the best flipping rod I have ever used. I bought a Helios and it is even better but I can't justify the price when compared to the C3. Very pleased.

Comments: It's light but not much of a handle on it. Rests about halfway up my forearm. I haven't had issues with my line grabbing the the rather bulky lure clip though. The foam on the handle doesn't have any give to it. I prefer Shimano but half off a lightweight rod is a good deal.

Comments: Follow up to previous post. Okuma replaced the rod without question. All I had to do was describe the break, how it was being used, and send a copy of receipt. Since the rod was less than 30days old, they even paid shipping from their end. I just sent them a piece of the rod with the rod description on it(model, line, and lure rating). Very pleased with the service.

Comments: Bought a 7'2 heavy. Great feeling rod. Transmits a bite as well as any I have used including Loomis GLX. The longer handle is great. The rod did break on a hook set into 3 pieces, but I think it must have been defective. Now I'm going to try out Okumas warranty hope it is good to go.

From: Zeng: Stockton, CA
Comments: Got one of the MH C3's and took it to Falcon, that did not turn out so well for the rod. Caught maybe 5-6 fish in the 3-6 pound class before it broke in 3 pieces. Guess that is what happens when you go to falcon under gunned. Loved the rod right up until it broke.

From: Zeng: Stockton, CA
Comments: I handled some of these rods at a dealer show this week, haven't used them though. They are extremely light, comparable to the new Abu Garcia Villian line up which i also got to handle. The spinning rods are really nice too. I would not have a problem using this rods if I had a buck fifty to drop on one right now. Saw Scott Martin bust a 36lb sack on his challenge against Randall Tharp on Okeechobee using them...must can alright.
